LAST week’s column, in which I wrote about the challenge of covering a culturally diverse community, elicited a range and volume of responses that left me surprised.

Among the interesting calls and correspondence that piece elicited was from a reader who proudly told me he was 100 years old and a lifelong reader of The Witness  — both of which knocked my socks off. He spoke about how he had recruited the help of sangomas on his farm to help find lost cattle, for example. He said they had been uncannily accurate and he related the experience as an example of how such beliefs straddled different communities in KwaZulu-Natal. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
